Los Angeles, CA - February 14, 2024 - Fama Technologies, a leader in AI-driven modern candidate screening, is excited to announce the upcoming launch of a revolutionary new feature: TikTok as a Source. This innovative addition will empower organizations to extend their screening capabilities to one of the world's most popular social media platforms, TikTok.

The TikTok Screening feature is designed to analyze publicly available video content on TikTok for critical misconduct issues such as violence, harassment, and fraud. This aligns with Fama's commitment to providing comprehensive and ethically sourced insights into candidates' online behavior, aiding employers in making informed hiring decisions and improving candidate fit and quality.

Ben Mones, CEO of Fama Technologies, emphasizes the importance of this development: "In today’s digital age, understanding who a candidate is and how they will show up in the workplace is crucial. The best way to determine future behavior is by looking at past and present behaviors. TikTok, with its massive user base and unique content, provides valuable insights into a person's character and behavior. Our new TikTok as a Source feature ensures that our clients can access this information responsibly and efficiently, further enhancing their ability to hire the best candidates."

This feature is built on Fama's cutting-edge AI technology, which respects candidate privacy and complies with EEOC, FCRA, GDPR, and more. The TikTok as a Source feature analyzes public content on the platform, focusing on behaviors that are relevant to the workplace and job, configurable keywords, and excludes personal data that is not job-related.

Fama Technologies continues to pioneer the field of AI-driven candidate screening, staying ahead of the curve in adapting to the ever-evolving social media landscape. With the introduction of TikTok as a Source, Fama reaffirms its commitment to providing its customers with the most comprehensive and advanced tools to foster safe and respectful workplaces.
